Roasted Barley Tea, No Caffeine; 10g x 30 Tea Bags
Barley tea also known as Korean barley tea or roasted barley tea—is a popular hot and cold drink in Asia. In Korea, the drink is called boricua (bori meaning barley and cha meaning tea). In Japan, the drink is called mugicha and in China, the drink is called Damai cha or mai cha.
The primary ingredient in barley tea is (of course) roasted barley. Barley is a whole grain that is grown around the world. Barley is popular with healthy eaters because of its high fiber content and a mild taste. The grain is easy to use in recipes and is used to manufacture bread and cereal, and is also fermented and used in the production of some alcoholic drinks such as beer and distilled beverages.
The flavor of barley tea is often described as light and nutty. However, some Korean tea makers include roasted corn in their recipes to boost sweetness. When corn is added, the tea is called oksusu bori cha.
